H.E Chogye Trichen Rinpoche

His Eminence Chogye Trichen Rinpoche, Ngawang Khyenrab Thupten Lekshe Gyatso, was the head of Tsharpa branch of the Sakya Tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. His Eminence was a renowned tantric master, a dedicated practitioner, an outstanding scholar and an eloquent poet. His Eminence embodied the wisdom, spirit and activities of the holy Dharma.




His Eminence was a master of masters as most Tibetan Buddhist lineage holders are his disciples. Amongst these disciples were His Holiness the Dalai Lama and His Holiness Sakya Trizin.
Perhaps one can begin to comprehend the greatness of His Eminence through the words of His Holiness Sakya Trizin, who describes the great accomplishments of His Eminence as thus:

"There are many who have attained the wisdom arising from the study of the Scriptures. There are some who have attained the wisdom arising from contemplation of the Dharma. There are few who have gained wisdom arising from meditation. His Eminence Chogye Trichen Rinpoche is one who has attained all three wisdoms. One should consider oneself fortunate just to meet him, which is in itself a great blessing."

In addition to His Eminence's stature among Tibetan lamas, King Birendra of Nepal awarded His Eminence "Gorkha Dakshin Babu", a tribute which has never been awarded to a Buddhist monk in Nepal before.

It was often said that His Eminence maintained the style of a hidden yogi as he has engaged in several three-year meditation retreats. Outside of these retreats, His Eminence spent most of his time in deep meditation and practicing tantric rituals and prayers from early dawn to many hours past midnight. His Eminence was regarded as the modern day manifestation of past Indian Buddhist siddha saints such as Mahasiddha Virupa.
